Ok, so here’s my deal. I’m not your standard guy...yeah, yeah, I know everybody says that. However, I genuinely mean it. I’m not normal...particularly for the U.S.
First off, I’m a pro athlete, its my passion, however it is triathlon, not something sexy like football or basketball. I’m a nerd. I’m a huge F1 fan, love sci-fi, fantasy, pop culture, etc. etc. I’m a trivia buff, a music nerd, love film, read a ton. Basically I often wonder why I don’t just up and move to Europe. No, really I do. Why am I not in Sweden (I would say Denmark, I spent about 10 months there in 2010, but I do like mountains). But, there’s always working for one of the British F1 teams. I mean, I did grow up in a racing family after all.
I’m the kind of guy that teaches himself graduate level aerodynamics or Java for fun.
However, I’m not the awkward geek type. I can hold a conversation. I’m not weird in social situations. Literally I’m that rare mix of a normal attractive guy, who is smart, multi-talented, spontaneous, and always up for whatever will make the best story.
Yeah that sounds cocky, but I’m sick of not being completely and totally honest on here.
Movies: I like Kevin Smith, Guy Ritchey (particularly, LSTSB, Snatch, RocknRolla), Star Wars series, Docs like Riding Giants and Lords of Dog Town/Dog Town and Z-Boys, I Like Hugh Grant stuff and rom-coms, I like most all the comic movies X-Men are favorites or Watchmen. Boondock Saints, American Psycho, Last Samurai, etc. etc. I like movies. Definitely like sci-fi and comic based stuff. If you're down to hit up comic-con hit me up, I've always wanted to go.
Shows: Borgen, Bron|Broen, GOT, Mad Men, The Office, Dr. Who, Chef Ramsey stuff, the Star Treks (but I've seen 'em all at this point), Daily Show, The Ultimate Fighter, and train wreck stuff (Real Housewives and the like, its a guilty pleasure), and I know the producer of The Killing and some others so I watch those as well.
Music: Too much for this space. Social D, Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly, Clash, Iron Maiden, Band of Horses, Xx, Death Cab, classic Metal, A-ha, Springsteen, Classic 70's stuff, The Who, Keane, East Coast hip hop like WuTang, J5, Biggie, etc. Some West Coast as well Cube etc. Country, Brooks & Dunn, Garth, Toby Keith. Gotan Project, etc. etc. Most stuff. I could pretty much just keep writing down bands for a few pages.
Food: Sushi is my fav. I do like a good piece of meat though. I like to cook. Love lobster. I'll eat most anything. Its more about the prep and freshness.
Sense of humor
Nice set of cooking knives
lots of music
my iPhone (don't know if that's a must have but it's growing as such)
(I'd say sex but that would just make me "such a guy" eh?)
